  • What You Can Expect

    Your private London tour experience begins even before you arrive. Once you have made your reservation you will be contacted with a 2-minute checklist to fill out - this will indicate which areas of the city you would like to visit and what style of tour you would like.

    The day of the tour arrives and your guide will meet you at your location of choice - whether you want to be picked up from a hotel, apartment or other location. Pickup times are flexible; whether you want an early start to beat the crowds or a lie-in, this can be accommodated.

    Your guide will explore London with you for a full or half day, depending on which option you choose. You will see the major landmarks, hidden areas, discover incredible ceremonies and have London's fascinating stories brought to life with your guide. If you want shopping and dining recommendations, your guide is more than happy to provide some that suit your tastes as well. Transportation using London's efficient and safe public transport system is included in the price of your tour.

    If you are unsure what you want to see an itinerary can be recommended - why not stroll through Mayfair and see the Changing the Guard from a secret location away from the hordes of tourists? Then, see Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Downing Street, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben - get great photos and hear fascinating stories.

    Next, have lunch at one of London's great markets, at a historic pub or at any other location, all the while enjoying the view of the Tower of London. After lunch, marvel at The Shard, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and all the hidden gems in between. This is just one example, of course. Your tour is a fully tailored service that is uniquely designed for you. You can spend more time in a certain location if you want, or change the tour half way through.

    At the end of the tour you can be dropped off at your location of choosing. Back at your hotel, a nice bar or pub, at a theatre for the evening or any other location of your choosing.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

This was an excellent tour. We packed so much into the eight hours and learned so much about London that we could never have found out about on our own. This tour is expensive but worth doing. Our guide was excellent and we even got to see the changing of the guards. We like to walk to we did plenty of walking that day which was great. Would definitely recommend this tour. I like that after you book the trip they send you a detailed questionnaire to determine what kind of tour you want. Therefore, the tour is customized specifically for what you want to see. Very professional and excellent tour.

You could see all that we saw 10 times and not know as much as we know now with Gio, our guide leading the way. He was amazing full of energy and knowledge. Brought us to all the places we requested and put us at the best spot for changing of the guards, and photo opportunity. He also recommended a great restaurant for the following night before we went to the theatre. It was really nice, and great food. It was worth just having him show us the buses, and tube, and having him take photo's with both of us in them. He told us about the large historical facts, and he found some small interesting facts that you would not find in a history book. I will not view another city without a private tour guide for at least one day, we took the 7 hours tour. We were never bored or felt the tour was too long. I would highly suggest you take the longer tour unless there are only a couple things on your wish list. Thanks, Gio, for all you did.

We had a private tour for 4 for 7 hours and we saw a lot in 7 hours! This included Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, London Bridge and Tower Bridge, Parliament, Big Ben, Downing St, Royal Courts, Piccadilly Circus, Globe Theater, Churchill War Room, Trafalgar Square, The Monument to the Great Fire of London, the Millennium Bridge, and St Paul's Cathedral. We also had time to eat lunch at Borough Market. While we did not get to delve into anything too deeply - the tour was just want we were looking for. Our tour guide Jade was fantastic and very knowledgeable. She had the entire day planned down to the minute. Overall the tour was great - but it was expensive compared to other tours we have taken in the past that have been similar in scope.

This was the highlight of our trip. We had such a lovely day seeing the sights of London several out of the ordinary such as little Venice. We had a great lunch together. Gio spent a lot of time interacting with my teenage daughter and trying to make the day interesting for her. We loved riding the bus and the underground with him. So much knowledge and a kind attitude. He made us laugh a lot. Fabulous, interesting and even relaxing day. Best tour in a long time. Highly recommend.

I live in Florida and my sister lives in Ohio. We traveled with Trafalgar Tour and we had one free day in London. We booked a seven hour tour with Gio at Private Custom Tour. From the moment I booked the tour, I knew I had made the right decision. Gio responded very promptly, and through emails we customized a tour that was beyond my best dreams., Gio met us at our hotel and throughout the day we walked, rode the tube and the double deck bus. We covered a great many sites and venues. and had the opportunity to do more in seven hours that some could do in many days. Gio was filled with a wealth of knowledge - I thought he was brilliant. Most of all, he was polite and delivered the information in a thoroughly delightful manner. I hope I have the opportunity to return to London. When I do, I will certainly plan a tour with Gio. Best Regards, Maggie, Ft. Myers Fl.
